The windmill at Denton, near the Ship and Lobster. This old mill was mentioned in 1787 and continued working into the latter half of the nineteenth century. The mill was worked in the 1850s by a former millwright called Adam Ashby, who in 1859 was knocked off the stage of the mill by the revolving sweeps for a second time ending up in hospital, this time suffering a broken leg. One of his sons named Stuart previously drowned near the mill. The mill itself was burned down, but exactly when is not known. A newspaper report states it was in 1885, although this might refer to another Denton near Canterbury.
